Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:11-13 the role of the 5 fold ministry gifts of pastor, apostle, evangelist, teacher, and prophet in building up the body of Christ. To effectively build up believers, all 5 gifts must be present, effective, and working without competition.
For instance, the teacher must not compete with the prophet or the teacher’s effectiveness will diminish. The prophet must not try to upstage the apostle or the prophet’s impact will diminish. Today there is no room for competition, but much room for complimenting the gifts. Focus on your primary call and you’ll be all God desired you to be.
